We were really looking forward to spending our honeymoon at Enchanted Valley, especially after all the great reviews here. However, our experience did not measure up to our expectations. To begin with, when we arrived, the hosts were surprised to see us - they hadn't checked the calendar. We waited while the room wa made up. There were didrty dishes around (including on the couch where we waited); it was clear we were not expected, despite having made reservations. The room, when we finally got in, was lovely but not entirely clean. Clearly hadn't been dusted for a while. There were some spiderwebs (and spiders) in the shower. When we walked aorund outside and checked out the sauna, we found that it was overrun with spiderwebs and obviously could not be used. The bed provided no supposrt at all - very soft - which meant little sleep and left us in pain the following day. Breakfast was delicious but very portioned (a plate of 4 slices of French toast was set out for 4 of us - my sweetheart and myself as well as K & M). We actaully went out to breakfast after leaving there.
Their website states that a tv and vcr is available in each room - not true. In fact, most of the amenities mentioned on their website were not in evidence. The website says they accept credit card and checks, also not true. It was much less like staying at a lovely bed and breakfast than staying in the basement of an older aunt and uncle. Ken and Marcie are actually very sweet people. They were interesting and clearly loving people. However... they were a little too overbearing. I understand that part of the b&b experience is talking to the hosts, but I am also used to having a tiny bit of privacy, too. I wouldn't say no one should ever stay there, but be very aware what kind of place it is. Not good for a romantic getaway, but maybe fine if you are looking for company and a very casual atmosphere.

I am so sorry you were disappointed in your experience at our Enchanted Valley B&B and I am disappointed that we didn't provide our usual hospitality. Here's why: My husband Ken, as I know now, was losing his fight with cancer. We closed the B&B shortly thereafter and as I look back I realize we should have closed sooner. I miss our B&B guests very much so Enchanted Valley is now again open.
